Organisation: Woodcraft Folk - Lancaster
Date: 4 May 2011
I set up a new Woodcraft Folk group with some parents (i'm not a parent myself). I ran the first term's programme of group nights which took in playing cooperative games, making musical instruments from rubbish, going on walks, drama and discussion. It was a group for children age 6-9 and I managed to get parents helping out and children making decisions about what they wanted to be doing.

Initially Meals on Wheels, and currently Lunch Club Helper
Date: 13 April 2011
When I first began with WRVS it was as a driver for Meals on Wheels. Unfortunately our area no longer has the contract but I was lucky enough to be good friends with our local Lunch Club Organiser (whom I also partnered for MoW) and she suggested I join her Lunch Club team. I did, and I thouroughly enjoy every minute of it.

Appropriate Adult Volunteer
Organisation: Devon Appropriate Adult Volunteer Scheme
Date: 6 April 2011
Have you ever wondered what the inside of police custody really looks like? This interesting and somewhat unusual volunteering opportunity will give you the opportunity to find out; involving you in the fascinating world of criminal justice.
Your role as an Appropriate Adult is to support and assist vulnerable persons aged from as young as 10yrs up to late seniors who find themselves in Police Custody. You will be part of an integral team needed for processing them whilst in custody that will include you sitting in on interviews, liaising at times with solicitors, doctors, nurses, police officers and custody staff.
Your role is to safeguard the rights, interests and welfare of the detained person whilst they are in custody.
The scheme runs 365 days per year operational from 9.00am until 10.00pm. A criminal record will not necessarily exclude you from the scheme. An enhanced CRB will be applied for with this voluntary post.
The next training not expected to commence before November 2011. This will be held in Exeter with lunch and travel expenses.
